Edwards defense hedges on whether to call ex-presidential candidate, mistress to testify
GREENSBORO, N.C. —
Attorneys for John Edwards indicated Tuesday their case was winding down, but they were not yet saying whether they will call to the witness stand the former presidential candidate or his mistress.
Defense attorneys said they would make a decision later Tuesday, but it was not immediately clear when they would make it public.
After testimony ended for the day with the trial still focusing on financial records, Edwards team said they had not made a final decision on whether to call Edwards, his oldest daughter Cate or his mistress, Rielle Hunter. They could also recall Edwards' once-close confidant and aide, Andrew Young.
Lead defense lawyer Abbe Lowell said they may call some or all of the remaining potential witnesses.
"We may also very well be done tomorrow," Lowell told the judge overseeing the case.
